Subjective versus objective bullying According to Niedl (1995), the ‘definitional core of bullying at work rests on the subjective perception made by the victim that these repeated acts are hostile, humiliating and intimidating and that they are directed at himself/herself’ (p. 49). Yet, situations where one person offends, provokes or otherwise angers another person, often involve substantial discrepancies between the subjective perceptions and interpretations of the conflicting participants. Incidences that may be considered mildly offensive by one individual might be seen as serious enough to warrant a formal complaint by others (Tersptra and Baker, 1991).
